Bob Docherty

We were lucky to have Bob Docherty visit us as part of book week. He was brilliant. Bob enthralled us with his reviews. There were queues next day to get out the books he spoke about.
Most common words today are - "Have you got that book Bob talked about, you know the one about...."
Wonderful. Thanks Bob
You can read some of Bob's other book reviews on his blog.


Book week

18 August 2010

Yes. It's finally here and the place is buzzing.
We have heaps of competitions; guess the teacher reading the book, book trailers, design a camp, 50 word txt stories, and heaps more.
The book sale is going well and lunch time crowds are crazy. Thanks to everyone who has bought books. This is our library fundraiser and it all goes to new books for our new library.

I believe in unicorns

I really liked this book. It is so good how they were so determined to save the books. It was so good I'm reading it again and I only finished it yesterday.
